Ceramic Jellyfish And Squid Plant Holders Are Awesome


If you’re going to have plants in your living area, you can be boring and put them in an ole’ clay pot. Or you can get creative and purchase one of California-based artists Cindy and James Searles’ many creations. Their hanging plant pots are shaped like jellyfish, squids, and other cephalopods, and they create a whimsical environment that looks like these creatures are swimming through the air in your apartment. They made them in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors, and the prices are more than reasonable, starting at around $30.

Text Breakups Are Out, In With The Break Up Beans


It used to be that you would break up with your significant other in person. Then, we started doing it over text. Lame, we know, but people will be people. But why stop there? The Break Up Beans seem like the new perfect way to tell your formerly-loved one that you’ve had enough of them. Water the little pot and 5 days later you’ll see two lima beans sprout, with the messages “It’s Over” and “Let’s Be Friends” written on them. By then you’ll have had enough time to pack your bags and rent a motel room somewhere, so it’s brilliant. And it’ll only cost you $7, so you’ll have plenty of cash left over for Late Night Lonely Pizza.

Another Use for Trolls: Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot

Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot


Remember those troll dolls that you used to collect back in the nineties? Well, they’re back in the form of these Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots, and they’re greener than ever. The makers of the pots have removed their signature mop of neon hair to make way for a living “wig” that you’re supposed to provide.

Looks like trolls have found a new use–and a new hairstyle in the process! Mother Nature would approve.

The Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots are sold for $35.

Rainmaker Turns Old Soda Bottles Into Watering Cans–Er, Bottles



House plants need constant watering and it’s always better to spread the water out evenly rather than just pouring it on. If you don’t have a watering can and just fill old water bottles up to water your plants, then the Rainmaker is something you need to get. It’s an attachment for plastic bottles that basically transforms it into a watering can of sorts so you can make it rain for your plants with a quick squeeze of the bottle.

The Rainmaker is compatible with most water or soda bottles, although it works best with 1 to 2-liter cola bottles. They’re available online for $11.99.

Would You Wear A Tiny Plant Around Your Neck?

We’re not sure what kind of person loves plants so darn much as to wear them around their neck, but we’re thinking at least one: whoever conceived of this product. That being said, the Wearable Planter seems like the kind of object that’s just quirky enough to interest at least a few of our readers, if only so you can wear it and have people go “wtf is that on your neck?” at you. It’s 3D printed in acrylic and hand finished for smoothness, and costs all of $37. There are instructions on how to get your plant in there, but it doesn’t come with one.

Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel

Plants… Better keep those away from us. Caring for anything that’s unable to come and nag for its food is a recipe for disaster round these parts. Yet, we’re still suckers for good design, and the Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel is just the kind of thing we’re sure could brighten someone’s day right up. It’s a self-watering flowerpot with a water container within, which then supplies it to the soil through a cord inside the pot.

Both the squirrel and the plant are dependent on your love and care. And, when you pour water through the knothole, the tiny squirrel will appear in its peephole and will show that the plant has enough water. As the water level decreases, you will see less and less of the tiny squirrel. If you only see its big, round eyes, then the squirrel and plant are awfully thirsty and it´s high time to water again.

It’s roughly $35 (€26).

Fish Tank Friday: Floating Garden


By Evan Ackerman

Changing water and filters becomes a thing of the past with this aquarium, thanks to a floating garden that creates a miniature mostly-closed ecosystem along with the fish living in the tank below. Tank water, which inevitably has a bunch of fish poo in it, gets pumped up to the floating garden, where it passes through a layer of sand containing bacteria that convert the poo into nitrates. Then, the nitrate water flows into the plants, and they absorb the nitrates as fertilizer. Finally, the clean water gets send back into the tank to keep the fish happy.

It’s a very neat and tidy system, and it not only makes your aquarium more interesting, but it makes it easier to manage as well. The design comes from Benjamin Graindorge and Duende Studio, and will be available for purchase early next year.
